Faraday Competition

On Friday, 9th November, six Y8 students attended the Faraday Competition in Salisbury. This is a competition run by the Institute of Engineering and Technology aimed at Y8 students who are interested in engineering and technology. The event involved the students being given a brief to plan, design and create a prototype that involved electrical circuits to solve a problem. The students were only allowed support from the STEM ambassador, but besides that had to work in their team to problem solve, create the prototype and then present their idea to the other teams STEM ambassador. The students took on the challenge very well and designed a working prototype. They all ended the day understanding more about what engineering involves and the potential careers that engineering can lead to.  #IET #Faradaychallenge
